    I think there are independent Baptists who aren't really affiliated with anyone but will call themselves by that title.

    I never understood these counter pickets, and do disagree with something seemingly intended to silence an unpopular view.

    For example, In the Snyder case, the father wasn't even aware of the counter protest prior to seeing it on the news

    i suppose i just figured that there was some minimal qualification to call your group "Baptist." can a group of people who choose to worship a stick of celery call their church "Baptist" without getting sued?

    No, they are stupid enough to think that they are the only ones who are right.

    It's like the guy who have been married 5 times, bitches about how bad women are, and misses the fact that he is the only true constant.

    WBC is just that stupid.

    Names mean nothing - it is meeting the IRS requirements for religious exemption.

    shame is in very short supply today, be it this church group, Hollywood or our government.

    Ironic that this is NOT what Jesus taught, isn't it? However, I wouldn't paint most Christians with that broad brush. Just some. You saying something like this is the same thing as somebody saying that Islam is evil because of the actions of a few.

    Maybe you should register the "Baptist" name and charge royalties...
